Thankful November Day 21

Today I am thankful for technology that allows us to stay in touch across the world. Living far away in the 1800s meant you got perhaps a yearly letter delivered when the weather was clear enough for mail to be transported. If you moved away from your family you were pretty much disconnected for life.

How lucky we are that we can talk on the phone, send a letter or package within a day or two, email, Skype, text message and Facebook. Yes there are annoyance and social decay that technology can be blamed for -- to some extent how it's made us a bit stupider, worse spellers and idiots who walk into walls and other people while staring into phone screens. But what an amazing blessing it is when put to good use to keep us close to the people we love. For that I am grateful.
